Next step of Everton hero Tim Cahill's career confirmed

🎉 #Announce @Tim_Cahill ! 🎉 Welcome to the #bbcfootball team for this season!


Everton hero Tim Cahill is joining the BBC Match of the Day crew for the forthcoming Premier League season.

The Goodison favourite, who scored 68 goals in 256 games during his eight years at Everton, is part of a new batch of pundits joining the much-loved Saturday night (and now of course Sunday night as well) institution.

MOTD announced the news on their Twitter feed by sharing footage of one of the Aussie hitman's breakthrough goals - his FA Cup semi-final winner for Millwall against Sunderland in 2004, just a few months before his £1.5m to Goodison - with the words: "Looking forward to more big moments from Tim Cahill this season with #bbcfootball"
